We Have Some New And Returning Faces Joining The CAA Team

Please join us in welcoming Molly Dunn (photo: top right) to the team. Molly is CAA’s new director of child welfare and juvenile justice. She has dedicated her career to improving outcomes of system-involved youth. As a provider of direct legal services, Molly has represented hundreds of children and youth in dependency, juvenile justice, education, immigration, family law and other proceedings. Prior to joining CAA last month, Molly directed FosterEd Arizona. Molly holds a B.A. from Macalester College and a J.D. from Stanford Law School.

We are also pleased to welcome back Damita Curry (photo: bottom right) as our vice president of development and engagement. Damita worked with CAA in this role previously with many key accomplishments including the launch of the Arizona Center for Economic Progress. Damita has managed fundraising and communications initiatives in senior leadership roles for children and family organizations in Ohio and Arizona. In doing so, she was responsible for raising millions for the most vulnerable children in our communities. Damita holds a B.B.A. from Kent State University.

We are so excited to have these high-caliber professionals join the CAA team!
